IRB AR training

It is quite challenging to create effective training materials, for an internal review board, on the ins and outs of AR.

Our doctoral social work students are required to conduct AR dissertation studies and yet, our IRB is untrained, in regards to the unique nature of AR. Students generally want to conduct research with vulnerable stakeholders on sensitive topics, so we are encountering difficulties with getting our learners' proposals approved.

In addition to being responsible for creating a training program for our IRB, I have been asked to work with learners to help them more effectively explain their plans to mitigate risk through design and articulate stakeholder potential benefit through participation. I'm also trying to help them build support for their desire to tackle senstitive topics by using the literature and their own professional experiences.
